Today (Tuesday 18th April), Peace Hospice Care announces that its Inpatient Unit has re-opened, on schedule, after planned repairs and refurbishment work.

The modernised patient rooms and bathrooms have created an environment that better supports patients, their families and carers.
The work took a total of six weeks and involved repairing flooring damaged by flooding in 2016 as well as modernising all patient bedrooms and bathrooms - new fixtures and fittings as well as decoration.

Speaking about the re-opening, Declan Carroll, Chief Executive of Peace Hospice Care, said: "I'm very pleased that the work has been completed on schedule.  We can now, once again, provide Inpatient support to those people with life-limiting illness in our community.  Our improved facilities will help create a modern and relaxing environment for patients and their families at what is, very often, an emotional and challenging time."

The work was completed thanks to restricted funding which is funding raised for this specific purpose.  Natalie Parkins, from Natalie Parkins Design, designed the 'new look' patient facilities and JB Comercial Interiors carried out the repairs and refurbishment work in the Inpatient Unit.
